Location: Northern Wisconsin
Located on a 120-acre site on a small lake in northeastern Wisconsin, Woodmancote Farm is a private and professional retreat for a Minneapolis family. The clients are members of a family whose lumber mill has been an important business in the region for generations. The process inherent in a lumber mill, of raw materials being transformed into various refined end-products, formed the conceptual basis for the formal moves and material choices within the project. Throughout the project, changes in materiality define the progression from the natural environment to the refined interior spaces.
